Talk about buyer’s remorse.  A toddler accidentally purchased a vintage car on eBay while playing with her dad’s smartphone!  Paul Stoute, of Portland, Oregon, didn’t realize what had happened until he received an email from the site congratulating him on winning an auction for a 1962 Austin-Healey Sprite.  At that point it became clear that his 14-month-old daughter, Sorella, had bought the beat-up vehicle for $225 using the eBay app on his phone.  While Stoute says he initially panicked, he’s since decided to keep the car, raising funds online to fix it up.  He’s also learned a very valuable lesson about phone security.  As for Sorella, she’s in for a treat when she gets her driver’s license!
